70 this purpose the arm 54 is provided with a refer

?xed on the point of intersection of the two
- straight lines on the grinding face. ‘From that

While certain of the outstanding capabilities a means including an arm pivotally mounted on an
of the unit are described above, it is believed
10 clear that the device is adapted for use in: other
ways than those outlined. Moreover, in any case
it is possible, by means of the plane of reference
established by surface 56 on arm 54, and suitable
trigonometric or other mathematical calculations,
15 to determine the settings and amount of adjust
ment required on the turntable, the micrometer
